Contrary to what President Barack Obama told the public, that he found out when it was reported, he did know that Hillary Clinton had a secret, private and illegal e-mail server. Why? Wikileaks published an e-mail where Clinton advisor and longtime friend John Podesta and Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden (also a longtime Clinton friend) agreed that “we need to clean this up” ).
What did the Obama White House say? This from the New York Times :
“The point that the president was making is not that he didn’t know Secretary Clinton’s email address — he did — but he was not aware of the details of how that email address and server had been set up, or how Secretary Clinton and her team were planning to comply with the Federal Records Act,” Mr. Earnest said on March 9.
